Introduction

What Car? says...

Public opinion tends to ebb and flow. But in the case of diesel, the tide is very much against it right now. So, you might question the decision to offer the Audi S6 performance saloon (and its Avant estate sister) with only a 3.0-litre V6 that drinks from the black pump.

Look beyond the ‘all diesels are bad’ headlines, though, and it’s an easier call to understand. Not only are diesels more fuel-efficient than the equivalent petrols, but they produce more torque, and that’s what you need to make fast progress without really trying.
